I don't know what conditions you have been driving in, but it is
possible, that it wasn'r until recently, that you encountered a situation
that required a little defogging. In our area, the temps have gone up
into the 40s, so windshield fogging is a bit of a problem. The a/c
compressor will dry the air, assisting in the HVAC system's defogging

You might check with the dealer, but first, read your manual
thoroughly. If you don't feel like going back to the dealer, then don't
worry about it until the weather gets warmer, or you find that something
really is wrong.
